At the height of the westward expansion in the late 1800s, came John Muir.  While thousands left their homes in the east and sought riches in the untamed west, John Muir was a small voice of conservation.  He was disturbed by what he saw as a loss of natural resources.  This is the story of Muir's visit to Yosemite in 1868.  It is based on a true story but many of it is made up.
